LA Galaxy will host an open tryout during the winter of 2017 for their reserve team, LA Galaxy II, in an effort to expand their recruiting pool and discover players for the 2018 USL season. The tryout will take place at the Kellogg Zaher Soccer Complex on Saturday 16th December and Sunday 17th December, 2017.
LA Galaxy II Open Tryouts offer participants the chance to become a professional soccer player by signing a contract with Los Dos. LA Galaxy II technical staff will be on hand to observe participants during the showcase, selecting a minimum of four players at the conclusion of the tryout to travel back to LA and continue their trial.
“We are excited to see new players and have organized this event to expand our talent identification efforts” said LA Galaxy Head Coach Curt Onalfo. “We want to find young talent who can enter our organization through Galaxy II, then work their way up to the first team. Scouting for Galaxy II gives us a chance to evaluate many different players: hidden gems that may not have agents, players without a fair chance in the past, first time pros, or young pros who are not under contract. We want to make sure that everyone has a fair opportunity to be evaluated for a chance to earn a professional contract on our 2018 LA Galaxy II roster.”
Concluding the events, 5 players will be flown to Los Angeles to train at The StubHub Center for a further week of in depth trials, looking to earn a professional contract. All expenses associated with the trip will be covered by LA Galaxy including airfare, room and board, and training kit (boots excluded).
